I was looking out my front window and saw this! I tried to zoom as best as I could and took these not too good photos between the slats of my window blind. There are reportedly many eagles around our town, but this is the first time I've seen one so close to me.

My parents have a beautiful hawk that frequents their yard. It is so beautiful soaring.. I'm not really much of a bird watcher, but they are really miracles aren't they.

It must have been a beautiful sight! It looks like it must have been late afternoon. Maybe he will come again.

It was late afternoon. I didn't see him flying past his take-off. I would have loved to have seen him soar.

When I was on one of my trips we saw an eagle way high up on a tree top. I believe I tried to get a picture because I had never seen one before. If I could remember what trip, but I think it was Virginia Beach...I will look back...

Wow! He looks like he is thumbing a ride! How nice it is to see one right at home. Where do you live?

I live in Clarksville, Arkansas. A rural area, with lakes and mountains and beauty.

My sister used to live in Springdale and Rogers, is that anywhere near you? She now lives in Missouri, but still owns in Springdale. Sold her house in Rogers. Arkansas is a beautiful state and I always loved going.

It's about an hour and a half from Springdale. In fact, my youngest daughter lives in Springdale. Small world, isn't it. Arkansas is a really beautiful state

It's a prettier view in the spring, of course. It's kind of dreary on cloudy days looking at all those bare limbs. Just a couple of months and we will have leaves and flowers. My favorite time.

It must be a Bald Eagle, what a lucky shot!

It did look majestic. I loved seeing the white on its legs as it was flying.

They're not the best quality, but I was taking them with my phone.

It was a happy accident that I saw it.
